in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. virginia has been even tending a little toward romney in my judgment. ohio has been a little stickier. are the auto bailout is an issue there. if you look at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have gotten from that -- that huge barrage of antiromney ads they ran before the convention. i would say this, though, sean. i think there is
romney would do to the economy just picture what would have happened if the red bull guy's parachute didn't open. plus romney surrogates trying to one-up each other in a race to the bottom. and we'll continue our series on the selling of the presidents with a look at the world's very first campaign ad. it's thomas jefferson said that a successful democracy depended on an informed electorate. our country's future depends on you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time to learn about the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. build a ground-breaking car. good. now build a time machine. go here, find someone who can build a futuristic dash board display. bring future guy back. watch him build a tft display like nothing you've ever seen. get him to explain exactly what that is. the thin film transistor display...

. economy getting better, economy getting better. romney camp has got to figure out a way to blunt that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything else. the drip, drip, drip has been pretty interesting in the last few days. again, the press totally
be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed giving up then we have a grou of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase already slowing the economy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declare victory li
an argument for economic freedom and talked about the difference between the real economy that mitt romney participated in and succeeded in and the solyndra economy of president where you fund favored enterprises. >> when we come back president obama revamps his stump speech, taking credit for recent positive signs in the economy. but is our outlook that rosy? our panel takes a closer look next. oo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. for a golf getaway. double miles you can actually use... but mr. single miles can't join his friends because he's getting hit with blackouts. shame on you. now he's stuck in a miniature nightmare. oh, thank you. but, with the capital one venture card... you can fly any airline, any flight, any time. double miles you can actually use. what's in your wallet? alec
pounced. the romney campaign says that it shows the economy is at a virtual standstill. and in america's heartland, you may think the jobs report has been a boost for president obama, he won ohio four years ago. and the economy overall is doing better than the rest of the country. but voters are still undecided. and as poppy harlow heard, there are still concerns. >> we basically started this in a run-down garage. >> reporter: that was 33 years ago, how is business? >> slow. >> reporter: you see, kevin has watched the business at his metal company fall and fall, down 20% this year. >> mid-2012, it started to slow down. and it has been a downward trend ever since, probably may. >> reporter: but his iowa is not the iowa the economic numbers illustrate, largely spared by the housing crisis, reaping the benefits of a strong farming sector, and unemployment well below the national average. >> i realize here, we're not bad in iowa. but our customer basis not basically in iowa. >> reporter: matters how california looks and how nevada and virginia looks. >> right. >> it is difficult for mitt r
of them-- when you talk to women, they think romney has the answer on the economy. and the worry here for the obama administration is married women. they are less dependent on the government, and less likely to buy the president's argument. so they're the group want obama campaign is really worried about. when i talk to the married women, on the one hand they say they think romney can handle the economy and they're worried about the republicans being too extreme and go back and forth. the romney campaign is trying to get them to drop this and think about this at the last minute. there are a small number of undecided voters -- and the question of trust. he was saying trust is a matter central to the presidency, measure important than anything else, and trying to tie that to this notion of romney changing his positions. that was also a pitch to women. romney's pitch, bipartisanship. >> schieffer: let me bring up this, a spent friday, spent a good part of the day with stu rothen bargain, and charlie cook, and i would these are the most respected analysts going today. both told me separat

further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal. so both the white house and the romney campaign weighing in. >>> the last jobs report, of course, is not without controversy. some even accused the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about today's report. busier highways.see usn on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. this is hayden. he's five years that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of cuts to their schools. prop thirty-eight. thirty-eight raises billions in new revenu

[laughter] but i will just say romney has said in his defensend education over and over again that, for example, with the money for disabled kids where kids with special needs. we will send that money to the parents to let them spend -- pick the school. he said we will send the money back to the local government, the state government. unfortunately i know we are not just fascinating to washington. i know him but he has to get elected. this will be a process of sending it back to the states which is where it should have been the fi
is that romney always wanted this campaign to be a referendum. you feel bad about the economy, give me a try, i'm a little more moderate than you think. but as the economic numbers have gotten better, as people have watched the president in the last week and it's been an extraordinary week, romney's argument loses its force and it also loses its force in states like ohio, the midwest, a lot of these battleground states where the president defined romney throughout this summer and that definition has stuck and that's why i think they can't move ohio. >> now, let's talk about this week. what impact did this week hurricane sandy have on how the president handled this and the jobs number? just the last several days, this week, what is the impact, in your opinion, on this election? >> before i do the politics, your hearts have to go out to people who have lost everything. >> no doubt. and you're hearing more and more stories. >> and the president's response has been extraordinary. i do have to say, who thought the october surprise would be chris christie, who stepped up to the plate, who said what h
. analysts say more people without jobs started looking for work, 171,000 new jobs were added to the economy. katie marzullo is in the newsroom with the way president obama and mitt romney are spinning numbers. >> reporter: as it turns out the numbers landed in some grey area giving both something to seize upon to benefit their own campaign. >> the president: hello ohio! >> reporter: despite the small rise in the unemployment rate president obama pumped up ohio this morning. >> the president: today our businesses created nearly 5 1/2 million new jobs. companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: the president admits there is more work to be done. but says this is a pattern of real progress that includes a stronger auto industry, thanks to his bailout. romney is ing the numbers another way at a rally in wisconsin this morning he said the report is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2%. today it is 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised.
important issue. while only 23% said immigration. no wonder that romney emphasized economy in september interview with univision. >> there are 2 million more hispanics in post officeerty today than when the president took office. we have had 56 straight months with unemployment above 10% for hispanic-americans. unacceptable. >> bush got 44% of the hispanic vote in 2004. polls show romney getting a little more than half that. bret? >> bret: jim, thanks. still ahead -- look at some of the big-time gaffes made by the vice president in recent days that have gone under the radar. first, transportation woes continue in the wake of sandy. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid.

're going to win it. >> let's dig into that abc news/washington post, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day
, and connie mack will also be appearing with mitt romney. turning to the economy, matthew rutherford in a statement earlier said the treasury still expects the government will hit the current debt and borrowing limit at the end of the year. he says treasury will employ the same types of procedures that it has used in the past to keep borrowing under the current debt limit of 16.39 trillion. the nation's debt currently stands at 16.16 trillion. the united states has never failed to meet its debt obligations, although the last battle over the raising of the debt ceiling in august 2011 went to the last minute before compromise must -- compromise was reached. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> i especially like watching gavel-to-gavel coverage. the only place to get the real deal. i also enjoyed "newsmakers." i like the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on. there is not really too much analysis. i appreciate how i can really see through and understand the program itself. and i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your gover
. the problem for mitt romney is the economy is getting better. consumer confidence is up. most people understand that. and so mitt romney all along the way, particularly over the last four or five months, has had to recalibrate his campaign. remember his campaign originally was based on the notion that the economy was in terrible shape, most people understood that and he was a better custodian of the economy. but as the economy has started to show signs of getting better and better, mitt romney has had to throw anything at the wall and see what sticks. he's taken to saying that, oh, well, mitt romney's responsible he says for the bailout of chrysler and gm. mitt romney says that the $716 billion that he wanted to take out of medicare is actually the $716 billion that barack obama is going to reduce medicare by. in other words, he is using up his air time and doing whatever he needs to do, saying whatever he needs to say in order to win some voters in one of the crassest displays of duplicity i frankly remember in a presidential campaign. >> professor robert reich, as ever, thank you,
romney because of the economy but if you get them thinking about adorgs and the social issues, then they lean back toward obama. so if they can just make these women voters have that issue at the top of their minds instead of the economy, that's what's going to sway them. gwen: here's an issue that's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics
with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to s double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that will bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7%p unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd. because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now.wo we have 2%. he promised an unemploym
is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by
the president's economic plan. now it's governor romney's turn. he has a five-point plan for the economy and he says he'll create a whopping 12 million jobs in four years. i have said before, i will say it again, that's a ridiculous pledge and i'll wear a dress for a week if it happens. why? because our anemic economic growth cannot support a huge surge in job creation. not without something very substantial changing and nobody predicts that to happen. here's the five points that president romney -- that presidential candidate romney is focusing on. first, energy independence. he says this will create millions of jobs in areas like oil, gas and manufacturing. second, trade. romney will open new markets and create a level playing field by pressure countries like china. three, he'll improve education, retrain workers and help the unemployed. these will likely be state run initiatives, however. four, etch' slash spending to cut the deficit and shrink the deficit. five, he'll had help small businesses that includes repealing obama care and cutting taxes. let's give romney the benefits of any doubt
that connects the economy in the states that matter. >> carly, you have governor romney not focusing on trust. do you want another four years like we have had. >> this is not the time to double down and trickle down on policies that failed us. it's time for bold changes that measure up to the moment and bring america's families up that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point focusing on ohio. 7% unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in battleground states? >> that important state has a republican governor that's done the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack.
. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived
, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
